Trident United Way has launched the Tri-County COVID-19 Response Fund to address the emerging needs presented by the impact from COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We are here - UNITED - to support our community and improve lives.
your dollars will improve lives
To aid in the response, Trident United Way has set aside $50,000 in emergency funds to match dollar-for-dollar any public donations up to $50,000.
Trident United Way will underwrite all costs associated with disbersing 100% of the funds going directly to COVID-19 response and relief efforts. In the unlikely case all funds are not spent, remaining funds will be set aside in a reserve fund for use during future response efforts.
Tri-County COVID-19 Response Fund contributions will be used for
Supporting basic needs to address loss of work or other financial hardships
Deploying efficient emergency networks of agencies with proven on the ground experience
Supporting nonprofit partners with the surge of assistance requests and supplement service capacity
Trident United Way is uniquely positioned to handle this large-scale effort, as it has a long history of leading special funds for past disasters like hurricanes and floods. All funds will stay in the Tri-County.
